Six of United's scholars have penned their first professional contracts with the club, deals which come into effective at the end of their scholarships.

Marcus Dewhurst, along with George Cantrill, Keenan Ferguson, Jordan Doherty, Oliver Greaves and French striker Simeon Oure have all recently put pen-to-paper on pro terms with United.

Goalkeeper Dewhurst has recently earnt international recognition with England's U17s, whilst Doherty and Greaves have impressed in United's development squad this term.

Ferguson and Cantrill are both young and versatile defenders, who continue to develop with experience at U23 level, whilst attacking midfielder Oure has settled in extremely well since joining the Blades earlier this season, following spells with USMF Gagne and Nimes Olympique in his native France.

Meanwhile, three first-year professionals, in addition to Regan Slater and Sam Graham, have signed new deals.

Jordan Hallam, Harvey Gilmour, both of whom have been regulars for the U23s this season, have committed their future to the club, along with Callum Semple who has recently returned to competitive action having picked up a serious knee injury last season.

Academy Manager Travis Binnion remarked: "These players have been given new deals as we feel they have the potential to progress.

"It is now up to them to continue to work hard and develop as quickly as they can to take the next step in their careers."
